Asking for More Licenses

To fast-track your deployment time and easily manage licenses from a centralized location, Robot licensing is available in your UiPath Cloud Platform account, in the Licenses page. Here you can renew your existing licenses, and request more licenses with the click of a button.
Account telemetry data is accessible in the Dashboard, the first page that loads after logging in to your account, displaying information like the usage trend of your existing licenses, and how they are distributed across services.

You can read about the licensing concepts and the types of Robot licenses here.

Important!

Both the Account Owner and Account Admin roles grant you viewing and editing rights on the Licenses page.
The User role grants viewing rights on both the Services and the Licenses pages.

Take a look at this video for a quick tour on licenses, or read on for more information:

License Usage Trend

You can view the license usage details on the Dashboard, the home page of UiPath Cloud Platform.

Important!

The User role doesn't grant viewing rights on the Dashboard page.

The License Usage Trend section displays comprehensive account information in a visual manner, featuring consumed versus allocated Robot licenses. If you want to assess whether there's room for maximizing licensing efficiency, you have the possibility to consult historical licensing data.

License Usage Trend section in the Dashboard page enables you to:

  • view the maximum number of licenses used concurrently by each type of Robot.
  • filter out data by selecting a Robot type - all robot types are selected by default.
  • adjust the time interval as desired - show last 7 days, last 30 days, last 60 days, or last 90 days.

Note that the graph is only populated for Robots that executed jobs, otherwise No usage history is displayed. It takes one day for the Robot usage information to be displayed here. Data is kept and displayed even if you renew or remove your license.

Distributed Licenses

The Dashboard page has another useful section - Distributed Licenses which enables you to keep an eye on the distribution of available versus allocated licenses. A license is allocated if it belongs to a service.

The section displays donut charts for every license type (Attended, Unattended, Development, and Non-Production) with the total number of licenses available in your account versus the total number of licenses allocated to services.

The example above displays the default distribution of licenses for the Community plan, where you get one service and all the Robot licenses are allocated by default to that one service.

If you change your license distribution, for example, if you plan to create another service and need some of the existing licenses to be allocated to the new service, the Distributed Licenses section might look like this:

Licenses

The Licenses page displays two sections:

  • Orchestrator Licenses - Displays the total number of licenses for each Robot type within your account, along with its licensing plan and expiry information.
  • Services - Displays 3 subsections, Computer Vision, Templateless Receipt Extraction, and Templateless Invoice Extraction, which enable you to license the AI Computer Vision Activities Pack and the UiPath.MachineLearningExtractor activity in Studio, respectively.

The initial number of licenses for each Robot varies according to the plan you selected when you signed up for the UiPath Cloud Platform account - Community, or Enterprise.

The Licenses page displays the current number of licenses, which is the sum of initial licenses plus any additional licenses you've requested and were already granted by our Sales team.

This page also allows you to request additional licenses in the event you should need more. Additionally, you can renew your subscription to the selected plan if you wish to continue using your account after the expiry date mentioned here.

Important!

Orchestrator licensing is activated automatically by UiPath when signing up on a specific plan, be it Community or Enterprise. Robots and Studio are automatically licensed once connected to services in UiPath Cloud Platform.

Should you require new Robot licenses or a renewal, just click the corresponding buttons, and our Sales team will reach out to you.

Computer Vision API Key

The Computer Vision subsection is displayed on the License page, and contains the Computer Vision API Key generated for the AI Computer Vision Activities Pack in Studio. The key is generated automatically when you create your account, along with your Account ID, and is stored within Cloud Platform.

Note:

Both the Account Owner and Account Admin roles grant you viewing and editing rights on the Licenses page.
The User role grants viewing rights on both the Services and the Licenses pages.

Click Copy Key to copy the displayed API Key to your clipboard. Paste it in your CV Screen Scope activity, as described here.
A request is sent from the activities to the Computer Vision Server, access to the server being granted based on the API Key.

If at any point the API Key is compromised, discard it by generating a new one.

Keep in mind that we limit the amount of data that can be processed every minute by our Computer Vision servers. The limit depends on your Cloud Platform plan and is measured in megapixels/minute:

  • For the Community plan, the limit is 30 Mp/min, roughly equivalent to 15 fullHD images/min.
  • For the Enterprise plan, the limit is 240 Mp/min, roughly equivalent to 120 fullHD images/min.

Generating New API Keys

  1. Click Generate new keyunder the desired API Key. A confirmation window is displayed.
  1. Click Generate in the confirmation window to generate a new API Key.

The old key is invalidated, while the new key is stored within Cloud Platform.

Important!

Don't forget to communicate the new API Key to the developers using the AI Computer Vision Activities Pack in Studio.

Templateless Invoice & Receipt Extraction API Keys

The Templateless Invoice Extraction and Templateless Receipt Extraction subsections are displayed on the Licenses page, and contain the corresponding API Keys. These API Keys are generated automatically when you create your account, and are required for the Machine Learning Extractor activity in Studio.

Note:

Both the Account Owner and Account Admin roles grant you viewing and editing rights on the Licenses page.
The User role grants viewing rights on both the Services and the Licenses pages.

Click Copy Key to copy the displayed API Key to your clipboard, either for invoice or receipt extraction. Paste it in your Machine Learning Extractor activity, as described here.
